A local man broke into two Dundas homes early Monday, police say – to raid the fridge and take a nap.

The first break-in happened around 2:30 a.m. at a home on Janis Court. According to police, the man proceeded to make a pizza and drink a bunch of wine before taking a nap in the homeowner's bed.

The owner got home at 7:30 a.m., "removed" the stranger from his bed, and then called police, a news release reads.

Somehow undeterred after already being kicked out of one home, the man then proceeded to break into another house on Cameron Avenue after he saw a car leaving the driveway, police say.

He grabbed a soda from the fridge and started chugging it in front of the TV – unaware that he was being watched by a 16-year-old girl who was still inside the home.

"She was smart enough to keep quiet and contact police," Const. Steve Welton said.

Officers arrived and arrested the man, who "admitted he knew what he was doing was wrong," Welton said. The man does live in the area, and isn't homeless, he added.

The officers took the man to the police station – where he proceeded to tear down the drywall and ceiling tiles in his holding cell.

"The motivation behind some people's decisions will always remain a mystery," Welton said.

A 26-year-old Dundas man has been charged with two counts of breaking and entering, two counts of theft under $5,000 and mischief under $5,000.
